Pawan Kalyan didn't mind saying someone like Chandrababu Naidu who backstabbed his Father-in-Law won't allow him to grow as a Leader. 'Why would the person who backstabbed NTR will allow him to grow? My friends and well-wishers told Me about the use-&-throw policy of Chandrababu. I knew backstabbing would happen for sure if I continue association with TDP. I'm not as good/innocent as that of NTR to allow anybody to backstab. If I was backstabbed, I would drag them on the road and make them sit shirtless. I don't fear for my life,' he asserted.
Jana Sena Supremo accused TDP of launching bad propaganda even though he criticized BJP several times. He said, 'TDP Leaders used to claim Modi & Lokesh address each other as Abbai & Thatha until few months ago. I am the one who revolted against My Brother. I am not scared of Modi but offers him the respect he deserves as Prime Minister of India'.
PK ridiculed Chandrababu Naidu for finding fault with the condolences expressed after the murder attempt on YS Jaganmohan Reddy. He further added, 'You don't even know how to offer condolences. Should we behave like you? Chandrababu is known for twisting his statements once after becoming CM. Babu and Chinnababu will face the consequences if they don't keep their tongues under control'.
